Supplies needed

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Tomorrow I will be rebuilding my system. With this said I want to know of all the things that I will be needing. I am going to put in a new motherboard, case and cpu. So it is almost like building a new system from scratch. I just want to make sure that I got all the tools that I need for this mission. Can someone maybe give me a list of all the tools that I will be needing? I would greatly appreciate that.

If you've got most of the supplies, make sure you've got the posting studs you insert before you install the motherboard, the grounded screws for the motherboard, a can of aerosol spray or an air compressor with nozzle to spray off the parts if they're congested with particulants, side screws, thumb screws, and a rubber pad to place your peripherals on while they're not being inserted into your motherboard. That's all I can really think of, other than software.

On top of that, you'll need a 1/8" Phillips screwdriver, a 1/4" Phillips screwdriver, a 1/8" flat head screwdriver, a 1/4" flat head screwdriver, perhaps a 1/4" socket and wrench for the socket, as far as tools go. If you have specialty screws in it, that'd be odd, but not unusual for some. Anyways, that finishes my thoughts.

Alright. Well I don't think that I will be needing the rubber pad because I will just move everything one at a time. Moving it from one case into the other. That would be the best way to go IMO. I do have canned air . The DFI board is arriving tomorrow so I don't know what all it comes with.

#1 philips screwdriver is the key tool
If I knew what size the nut driver was for the brass stand offs I'd recommend that too... think it's 5/32 or a small adjustable wrench or a plyer works.
Some prefer an anti-stat wrist strap, I simply touch my other case to discharge static before handling any components.
Small needle nose plyers come in hand some times too.

Thanks. Yeah I have everything that you listed except the anit-stat wrist, but I guess touching my old case will work just as good . I am also wearing anti-static slippers so that should be a plus THanks

The DUke is right you can just ground and discharge any build up by touching the case case but if I always try to have a wrist strap. it takes a very small amount of ESD to ruin a chip...that said with or with out a wrist strap I have never managed to fry one *knock wood*
